so i walked.
and i was tense and frustrated.
felt some pangs of anger. watched them
as friends have been nudging me that way.
and i plowed thru all this frustration
mess inside me.
and got nowhere.
and then as i was walkin' home this semmingly
small little thought came boppin' thru.
certainly wasn't small at all.
do you get frustrated that you can't get
water from a stone?
we've all heard that.
but i heard it different this morning.
and my eyes got big.
why so frustrated here?
you can't change this. you can't fix this.
it is what it is.
you get what you can out of it, and you
see it for what it is and don't expect more.
and then that quote that we all know and i
will mess up but will give you enough that you'll
know which one i mean pops in....
changing the things you can.
accepting the things you can't.
and knowing the difference between the two.
something like that.
i'm so far from wisdom i can't even remember
the quote right.
honest to pete, it's like this whole weight
fell off of me.
there a little voice haunting me tho....
is that settling?
maybe that's another part of the whole thing.
i'll have to figure that out later.
right now i'm just kinda enjoyin' lettin'
the rock be and not looking for water from it.
maybe the stream with all the water i want
